Meet Katelyn

I grew up about 30 minutes north of the city in Buffalo Grove. I currently work in the Chicago loop at a digital marketing agency and live in Wicker Park. I absolutely love kids and have been babysitting since I was in 5th grade - it began with a next door neighbor in which I would watch her five year old daughter, Sammy. She would be home for most of the time, however, as the years passed, I would begin watching Sammy on my own. Word traveled around our neighborhood that I was a reliable sitter, and I began sitting for several families. I babysat through high school, getting to know the two families I sat for really well. I would even see them on my college breaks when possible. I have a niece who is seven and have been really involved in her care since she was born. Aside Read more from hands on experience, I also took child development course work in high school.
